The Catholic Presence on Twitter

May 19, 2009

I just created a Twitter account. I did a search on Catholic, and WOW! the Catholic presence is huge! And then that takes you to other Catholic accounts, and then some more. I hope and pray that we can set the Catholic world on fire. There is so much information out there, we just need to find a way to get all of the Catholics to it. By all I mean active Catholics, lukewarm Catholics, lapsed Catholics, and all others.

Last week in the Magnificat devotional, on the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, the meditation of the day was by Sister Lucia, the oldest of the three children to whom Our Lady appeared in 1917. She said “the materialistic world does not know God, does not understand the spiritual life of the indwelling of the Most Holy Trinity in us. And not only does it not understand it. It actually despises it and even persecutes it because it does not know it; but it persecutes it because it does not know it, and is unaware of the countless treasures and intimate riches which are contained in it…. The world seduces and deceives, and Christ cannot reveal himself to those who allow themselves to be caught in the deceitful illusions of the world. Hence, those who abandon themselves to materialism do not understand the language used by Jesus Christ who is the Word of God; they have been called, since we were all called to follow the divine Law, but they have not been chosen, because they did not wish to hear the voice of God, that is, the teaching of Christ who is the Word of God…”

Some how we have to use the materialistic world to reach out to our materialistic brothers and sisters and hope and pray that they hear the call to come home.
